Saying “yes” to ENCORE has paid off for a couple from Dundas, Ont.

Carol and Joe Ridsdale matched all seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in the Dec. 26, 2020 LOTTARIO draw to win $1 million.

The couple, who are in their 50s, initially thought they had won $100,000 when they checked their ticket using the OLG Lottery App.

“I was having a frustrating morning and decided to stop what I was doing and check our lottery tickets,” said Carol. “I used the OLG Lottery App and when I saw Big Winner, I thought my phone was broken.”

She asked her husband to have a look at the ticket.
